During meditation, I can see that my heart is just like a lake with a flat surface.
Trees, grasses and flowers around it, with animals playing around. A group of birds are flying above the lake, and their motion reflects clearly on the lake surface. A few swans swim on it, ripples following their back. Some fish jump up from the water, and then disappear from my sight. A light breeze prevails over the lake, bringing peace, calmness and freshness to the whole surrounding. Yet there are many fish, water plants, small shrimps and living things underwater, creating a vibrant and living energy beneath the peaceful surface.
I am happy that my heart now is in peace and calmness, at the same time full of life.
However, I still find that there is a little bit aloneness (or loneliness?) in my heart. Though I have learnt to live based on my own heart with little care on others’ thoughts, I still need some close friends to identify with me. This is what I am lacking in. On the other hand, I have to accept such a situation. Spiritual loneliness is very common among people whose consciousness is raising and souls are advancing. Fortunately, I am get used to not caring much about others’ understanding. It is not a very big deal even the need cannot be satisfied at the moment.
